Cops: ‘Skeletal remains’ of chewing gum heir stolen

leave a comment »

“The chewing gum industry was born in 1869 when Thomas Adams was treated to a nugget of chicle, an ancient Mayan treat. His supplier was Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, the former Mexican president then living in Staten Island. Thomas Adams quickly saw that the sap of the Mexican sapodilla tree was far superior to the typical chewing treat of the day, paraffin wax.” – Newsday

Connected with the alleged theft of Geronimo’s remains by the Yale University “Skull and Bones”?
